NOIDA: Nearly 30 RWAs from Greater Noida who met GNIDA CEO on civic issues of dirty, low-pressure water supply to a 10% increase in water tariff every year, lack of routine garbage pick-up as well as dedicated dog policy etc last week, complain no action on the ground despite nearly a fortnight of the meeting.

“We met GNIDA CEO NG Ravi last week on August 7 in the presence of additional chief executive officers (ACEOs) Medha Rupam and Anand Vardhan. We apprised them about 3-4 major issues faced by residents across Greater Noida as nearly 20 RWAs were affected by it. These include poor quality and less quantity of water supply. There is constant low pressure despite a 10% increase in water bills every year. It’s been 13 days since the meeting and yet, there’s no action on the ground,” said Devendra Tiger president Federation of RWAs Greater Noida.

Tiger adds that presently the water supply in the city is not good. “Dirty water has been supplied in many societies and sectors of the city. While at some places there is no pressure and in other places, the water meter is on, but there’s no water supply. Also, chlorine is not being added to the supply water. The authority is not able to provide water services despite regular payment and increased water tariff every year,” said Tiger.

Apart from water, the residents raised the issues of lack of sanitation in residential sectors. “The authority’s health department is not doing its job properly. There’s no fogging despite increasing outbreaks of mosquitoes and cases of dengue and malaria. Also, garbage pick up is not being done properly in sectors. There are many days when grange is left dumped in the sector roads,” said Deepak Bhati general secretary of the federation.

Bhati further adds that there is no dog policy implemented yet in Greater Noida. “Every other day we face incidents of stray or pet dog biting residents. Yet, there’s no dedicated dog policy for the city,” said Bhati.

While ACEO Anand Vardhan promised to address the water issue in 15 days, GNIDA CEO NG Ravi assured to settle the complaints of fogging, dogs and garbage litter soon. “Tenders will be out soon, and work will be visible on the ground,” he said.
